Few and Far Between

We've been getting a couple of days of wind each week. Usually nothing very strong but worth the effort even if the forecast is discouraging. Water temperature is in the low 70's so most all days are good beach days. I'm flying out to Massachusetts tomorrow but it will be too cold for me out there - not even going to take my gear. I hope there will be some wind left in May when I get back.

Wind Guru

Windguru is calling for 25 to 30 knot winds Thursday and Friday. That can change but it sure looks good for now.

Windy Wednesday

We got the wind that was forecast and a whole lot more on Wednesday. It was blowing over 30 knots for awhile. A few years ago most of the kiters would wait for the wind to calm down but yesterday everyone was anxious get get out on the water and give it a try. Conditions were brutal but everyone handled it great. I used to dream of days like yesterday but I haven't been kiting much this year and I took it easy. Damn! I hate wasting a chance to go big. Even taking it easy I was getting big floaty jumps but the potential was there for massive jumps. Please wind - give me another chance!

Later the wind came down to the 20 to 25 knot range and stayed there all afternoon. It got crazy out there with a bunch of kiters all staying up close to the point and throwing down trick after trick, practically on top of each other. Almost as much fun to watch as to do.

I didn't have my camera with me so here are a couple of shots that I borrowed from Poulette's Facebook.

Not much wind in the forecast. Maybe some next week - Wednesday and Thursday.

Semana Santa has had a surprising slow start but the party should kick into gear this afternoon. We'll see.
